NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Ohio State vs Illinois Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

After putting together an impressive season, the Ohio State Buckeyes have earned their spot in the 2021 NCAA Tournament and March Madness. The team has been slotted as a two seed in the South Region.

Ohio State will open up NCAA Tournament play this weekend against Oral Roberts. It figures to be a pretty manageable matchup. However, things figure to get significantly tougher afterward with Florida or Virginia Tech waiting in the Round of 32. Other notable teams in the region include Baylor, Arkansas, Purdue, and Villanova.

The Buckeyes may have fallen short on Sunday for the Big Ten Tournament title, but it’s still been a wildly successful season in Columbus. And the team now has a chance to build off that with a manageable route in the NCAA Tournament. It should be a fun ride.
